Chinese newcomer actress Jing Tian, whose acting credits include the lead role in a stage rendition of Ang Lee's "Lust, Caution," has been cast as the female lead in Chinese period war epic "Warring States."

Director Jin Chen was quoted by the "Straits News" that "casting a new face could avoid aesthetic fatigue."

Jing Tian will star as love interest of Sun Bin (played by Sun Honglei "A Simple Noodle Story"), while Francis Ng ("Infernal Affairs II," "Tracing Shadow") will star as Pang Juan. Kim Hee-sun plays Pang Juan's younger sister. Other cast includes Jiang Wu "The Robbers," and Japanese actor Kiichi Nakai "When the Last Sword is Drawn"

The story revolves around the confrontation of military strategists Sun Bin and Pang Juan. Wikipedia describes that Sun Bin and Pang Juan are sworn brothers serving the Wu state as military strategists, but later Pang became jealous of Sun, and framed him for treason. Sun Bin would later escape from the Wei state to the Qi state, and was appointed chief military advisor of Qi state.
